It’s been a desperately bleak few hours for the Rangers fans drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern, who’ve been lamenting their dreadful premature exit from the Europa League at the hands of Progres Niederkorn.
Our local Light Blues really don’t know where to go from here, following what has been described as perhaps the worst ever result for a British side in European competition. Indeed, some of them have already been arguing that the club should SACK manager Pedro Caixinha.
Still, reports from the Daily Mail rain on that particular parade. According to their report, top brass at Ibrox do not intend to sack the Portuguese, who has brought in eight new players over the course of the summer. While the loss over in Luxemburg has reportedly made officials think about changing the infrastructure of the club, they also believe the fact the game came just two weeks after the return to pre-season meant their new arrivals had no real chance to click into gear.
Perhaps there’s something to be said for that, though the Gers draped over our bar are ridiculously concerned about the potential complexion of their campaign under his watch, so hope the club have their best interests at heart.
